Today I had an ultrasound just to check on Ember's size. I had it at the hospital where I will deliver and where I went when I miscarried last year. They send you to radiology for ultrasounds there, but I haven't been there with Ember, since they did only level IIs we had to go to Bethesda. So I was not prepared for the emotions. They sent me back to the waiting room, and across the hall of course is the room and the bed where I was when they did that ultrasound a year ago. Then the dr goes by who told me the baby had no heartbeat, then the tech who did the ultrasound. And a whole ton of feelings and memories come flooding back. Then they wheel this girl in the room and leave her right in front of me and my almost 38 weeks belly. Her husband was with her, and it wasn't long before the tears are rolling down her face. All I could think was how tough it was being the same room with pregnant women. I felt so bad that they had been so insensitive. I should have said something to the staff, or at least filled out a comment card. Also when one tech was doing mine the one doing hers was in the hall (at least they took her to a different room) and was asking him things like don't they prep these patients?? I have 4-5 weeks and a level of 1400 and an empty bladder. Now I know what all that means, and her husband is in the waiting room and can hear all of this. It just seemed wrong. I felt so bad for her and me too. Ok, well thanks for listening! And by the way, Ember looks really good and weighs 8lb13oz already! Next Friday she'll be here if not before!

That is really horrible - I can't even imagine how doctors and nurses can be so insensitive and just not think!! I just wanted to wish you the very best of luck - I'm so happy for you and can't wait till you post pictures of your latest addition! Thank you for all the advice you've given me since I found this board a few weeks ago - you've been a pleasure to talk to!! Good luck!

I agree, that wasn't right and I'm kicking myself for not saying something. I think people aren't really sensitive to it unless they've been through it. Its amazing how your perspective changes, at least I know mine did.

And thank you so much for the wishes!! I will post pics when she gets here! I'm glad I can help you at least a little and I wish you the best of luck! Before you know it you'll be posting pics of your belly and then of your baby! Can't wait to see them!

That is horrible for her. I was in the same room for my u/s this time as I was when I was told that my baby had stopped growing last year. Dh did not know until I had told him because he had not been with me then. When I had my m/c the staff at the office where my u/s was done made sure that I got back to my dr office in a way that would not draw too much attention to me because I was so upset. They were very nice.
